    OpenSuSE Leap 15 not detecting NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050

    First... this is not my first rodeo, some of you older folk will remember me as MkIII_Supra... no longer have the email address I used to set that account up and can't remember or reset the password... so here I are...

    Specs:
    Video Card
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 w/ 4GB GDDR5

    Processor
    Intel® 8th Generation Coffee Lake Core™ i7-8750H 6 Core - 12 Thread Processor, 2.2 GHz (Max Turbo Frequency 4.1 GHz), 9MB Smart Cache

    Memory
    32GB HIDevolution Approved Dual Channel DDR4/2400MHz

    Brand new MSI rig just got it a week ago, tried a couple different distros and OpenSuSE was the only one to install without a massive headache. Anyhow I have been having some issues with Steam randomly crashing so I have been going through and fixing that when I noted OpenSuSE isn't recognizing the NVIDIA card but it is recognizing and using the onboard Intel Graphics card... so... ideas?

    I do not know what's going on but on Ubuntu and Mint I have the same problem with this graphics card.

    I suppose that's meant to be /usr/X11R6/lib(64)/ instead, that's where nvidia's OpenGL libs are located (if you use the rpm packages at least).
    But Tumbleweed uses libglvnd since a while now to allow to have several OpenGL implementations side-by-side, so this should not be necessary at all anymore as nvidia's GL libs are in the standard /usr/lib64/ as well.
    I'm not new to Linux, but I'm new to Optimus so I have to ask some friends at Apknite dev department:
    Let's create a checkpoint if you're using btrfs (everything here is to be done as root): snapper create -d "Checkpoint before messing with X" - this way you can always come back to here if needed by running snapper list and then snapper rollback <number of checkpoints taken from the list>
    I have installed the Nvidia drivers using the bumblebee repository (but not the bumblebee program itself, only the drivers).
